earthy edinburgh

Hello!  How have you been?  I had a lovely week off last week, spending time with family on the west coast, celebrating my grandad’s 95th birthday, and walking along wind swept beaches.  The west coast definitely is the best coast!  It was certainly hard going coming back east and settling back in to work this week!  I did find that a cup of tea in this cosy Edinburgh spot definitely helped me power through though!

Here are some interesting things related to environmentalism that I’ve read over the last two weeks, and that you might like too:
